Poll Greeters stand outside polling sites and offer voters a leaflet listing the candidates and issues the Alachua County Democratic Party has endorsed or opposes. The purpose of Greeters is to educate, encourage, and enable voters to not only vote for Biden and Harris, but also to vote the entire ballot, ensuring that all of our candidates are successful and that the issues we care about are enacted or defeated.
A mask that will protect Greeters and identify them as representatives of the Alachua County Democratic Party will be provided, as will a packet containing leaflets and instructions.
Greeters will be assigned 2-hour stints at all 6 Early Voting locations from Oct. 19 through the 31st and to all precincts on Election Day, November 3d.

If you can volunteer for one - or several -- stints, please email the following:

Robin West - 
(if you want to greet at the Reitz Union)
Margaret Boonstra -
-  or  - 
Charna Cohn -
(if you wish to Greet at any other precinct(s))

Let them know of your preference for dates, times (morning, noon, or late afternoon), and locations, and they will get back to you to arrange your assignment(s).
